I find adapting a book easier, says filmmaker Sriram Raghavan

Mumbai: Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan believes bringing alive a book on the big screen is a far easier process than coming up with an original story which takes time.

In his career, the acclaimed director has tackled two book adaptations — 2007’s “Johnny Gaddaar”, which was based on French novel “Les mystifiés”, and “Badlapur”, adapted from Italian novel “Death’s Dark Abyss”.

At the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival’s panel discussion, titled ‘Adaptations – the Stories We Choose to Tell’, Raghavan said he reads a lot of books which helps him during the writing process.
